The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) is set to recover 200 containers auctioned by the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) outside the ports, its Managing Director, Usman Mohammed, has assured.

He said the containers were filled with power equipment imported from abroad, adding that TCN is convinced that the containers would be recovered soon, and thereafter taken to where they are needed for the growth of the sector.

In a statement, Mohammed said TCN has recovered 693 out of over 800 containers that were brought into the country by the previous governments, in order to improve power generation, distribution and transmission.

He said the containers were stranded at various ports, due to the failure of the past government to pay the necessary charges on them.
